Non-binary turbo codes promise excellent performance for a wide range of applications and environments, but research in this area is sparse. The performance of a non-binary turbo code defined in GF (4) on a two-way wireless relay channel (TWRC) employing physical-layer network coding, which is affected by impulsive noise is investigated. Simulation results for binary and non-binary turbo codes are presented and validated with an error floor analysis at the relay of the TWRC and it is observed that non-binary turbo codes significantly outperform binary turbo codes at low signal-to-noise ratios.
